    Authentic is questionable at the places mentioned above
    Morelia Taqueria off of Campbell Dr and Farmlife Rd. and the original one in 961 W Palm Dr
    Homestead, FL 33034
    is the real deal. These other places mentioned above are watered down americnaized versions of a traditional taco. Being mexican myself and growing up on homemade mexican food… well we cannot be fooled…
